xp mode seamless application launches from Windows 7 - Windows Updates and Security Essentials definitions


  • I have noticed that when XP Mode is opened in a window and accessed as a regular operating system (in a window), various maintenance tasks can be performed - such as ensuring that Windows Updates are obtain and applied (particularly on patch Tuesdays), and updating Security Essentials' definitions.

    However, when an XP Mode application is launched from Windows 7 using seamless mode, it appears that the above maintenance tasks do not take place.

    Is there a best practice for the care and feeding of XP Mode with seamless applications?

    Thank you.
